No surprise to hear the Shkahtar-Juve draw is the most popular bet at@Sportingbet_com tonight. Not one for me when trading at odds-on. Shakhtar W16 on trot at home & W13 D4 L2 last 19 at home in Europe. Like them DNB as an option. They’ve scored 2+ in 5 last 6#UCL games.
CFC W7 D1 last 8 home #UCL games & should see off Nordsjaelland. Although only 1W/11 now. Nordsjaelland leaked 16 in 5 #UCL games. 5/5 CFC #UCL games gone O2.5 while Nordsjaelland lost to nil on both away #UCL games. Would rather win to nil than O2.5.
Bayern W15 L1 last 16 home #UCL games & scored 18 conceded 2 in last 5 home matches. They’ve scored 2+ in their last 12 home#UCL games. BTTS looks a runner. BTTS in 7 of Bayern’s last 8 #UCL games. BTTS in 3/5 BATE games & they’ve scored 5 in their two away #UCLgames.
Big move for Lille today – 11/8 from 17/10. Valencia without Soldado & W2 D4 L5 last 11 away #UCL games. Lille D3 L3 last 6 in Europe. U2.5 a bet. Lille failed to net in 3 last 4 in #UCL. 8 of their last 11 games gone U2.5 while Valencia tendency for low-scoring away games.
FCB well backed. Hard to disagree – will still field strong XI & Messi chasing record. W6 on trot since Celtic loss scoring average 3.67gpg. FCB W10 D2 last 12 v Portuguese sides & W15 D3 last 18 home#UCL games while Benfica W1 D1 L7 away games in Spain. O3.5 goals looks a bet.
Celtic 4/6 from 4/7 but still look short. Expect them to do the business nonetheless. W14 D6 L2 last 22 #UCL home games – the 2L came v FCB. Celtic W2/6 since beating FCB. Spartak 0D/31 away #UCL games & well beaten by Zenit at weekend. Already L4/5 in #UCL this term inc 2/2 away. Celtic scored 1st in 3/5 #UCL games this season & also scored in the first half in 3 last 4 games in all comps. Celtic to score first a play
Man Utd 4/7 from 4/9 & weakened team should still be good enough. W26 D10 L1 last 37 home #UCL games & very competitive at Gala away. Cluj 15pts off Romanian lead & L4/10 in league. Do like BTTS – Cluj netted in 9/9 #UCL games this term & banked in last 4 #UCL games. ManU 1 clean sheet in 13 now & will field an unfit backline. They’ve come from behind 9 times this term & conceded 1st in last 4 #UCLgames.
Braga winless at home in #UCL since 2010 & L3 on trot at home in Europe. Also L2 in league on spin. Galatasaray 11/10 to 6/4 though. Galatasaray W6 D3 L2 last 11 away Euro games & have generally looked more threatening & comfortable on the road.
1 pt acca Lille v Val <2.5 goals, Chelsea to nil, Shakhtar DNB, Bayern v BATE BTTS, Celtic to score first, Man Utd v Cluj BTTS, Galatasary DNB, Barca v Benefica >2.5 goals 82.4 @BWIN
